SaaS-based technology company Alight has appointed hedge fund manager Rick Brandt as vice president of platform product management to drive the firm’s real-time data analytics strategy.

Brandt has a background in investment management, data science, product management and product marketing, most recently as portfolio manager at RS Investments and Cerebellum Capital, a San Francisco machine-learning based hedge fund.
Prior to that, he was a partner at Resultant Capital Partners, a start-up alternative investment management firm.
He has held senior investment-centric roles at Symphony Asset Management and Connective Capital Management, along with technology marketing and product-centric roles at GoDigital Networks and Nokia.      
"The business world is facing a huge problem right now – there is just too much data flowing from too many places for executives to harness that information into effective decisions," says Brandt. "That's why I'm excited to join Alight – the opportunity is tremendous and I look forward to making Alight as indispensable to the CEO, CFO and other senior executives of every industry as the Bloomberg terminal is to every portfolio manager in the investment industry."
"Rick's quantitative portfolio management experience will be invaluable as we push further into using machine learning and predictive analytics to deliver enhanced insights to our customers and their decision making," says Steve Warren, CTO, Alight. "Our solution will become more powerful and help our customers find greater profits and growth opportunities."
